Insert Page no in each group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I have created a group in my report (rdlc file). Each group will have more than 100 records. So it's displaying in 2 or 3 pages. I need to insert the page no for each group like 1 of 3, 1 of 2. Could you please help me to insert the page no in each group instead of total no of report pages?

    Reset Page Number On Group



    How can I reset my page number back to 1 every time I get a group break?

    Resetting the page number on group breaks isn't natively supported, but it can be achieved by tracking group breaks in a shared variable and subtracting off the page offset of the first page of the group from the current page number.

    Step 1:  Make sure there's a textbox in the report which contains the group expression

    Step 2:  Add shared variables to track the current group and page offset
     Shared offset as Integer
     Shared currentgroup as Object

    Step 3:  Add a custom function to set the shared variables and retrieve the group page number
     Public Function GetGroupPageNumber(group as Object, pagenumber as Integer) as Object
      If Not (group = currentgroup)
       offset = pagenumber - 1
       currentgroup = group
      End If
      Return pagenumber - offset
     End Function

    Step 4: Use the function in the page header or footer

    Note:  Because this uses static variables, if two people run the report at the exact same moment, there's a slim chance one will smash the other's variable state  (In SQL 2000, this could occasionally happen due to two users paginating through the same report at the same time, not just due to exactly simultaneous executions)  If you need to be 100% certain to avoid this, you can make each of the shared variables a hash table based on user ID (Globals!UserID).

    A full working sample of page number reset on group is attached.
